  1. Hm, I always considered sovereigns to be British coins though the early Sydney Mint sovereigns were Australian. Not sure how that worked as in 1921 or 1922 the exchange rate changed and British coins stopped being used in Australia.
  2. Where is that image from? The Royal Mint?

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Nice score!
  4. Any sales/new examples since then?
  5. I know there was a topic on this before but I couldn't find it - so, anyone know of any other examples of an 1872 die letter C farthing coming to light? I haven't seen anything here on in Coin News but I'm not sure where else to check.

    1897 dot penny. Advice needed.

    I vaguely recall reading a similar theory before so you may be onto something - might have been in one of Michael Gouby's books? I really can't remember now.

    Goubys The British bronze penny .

    Oh all good - I just hadn't visited here in a few months and thought it was old news - it was only mentioned last week now that I look back.

    Goubys The British bronze penny .

    Did this updated edition end up happening?
  9. I believe the Royal Australian Mint do the right thing - pretty sure all the advertised mintages is what ends up getting produced, and some things are advertised as unlimited mintage (so whatever they can sell within whatever window they give themselves I guess). Also, I had some luck getting images of early 20th century patterns from the Royal Mint Museum recently - it may be worth your while emailing them to see if they have an image of the 2002 Jamaica coins (and if they don't they would hopefully be able to confirm if they have any in their collection).
  10. Hi Tom,

    A bit forward I know, but if you don't mind my asking, how much did that '94 proof set go for?


    1. Mr T

      Mr T

      Don't mind at all - it was an uncirculated set and it was $5 (Australian dollars in 2016) - absolute bargain in my opinion.

      Oh, my! That is a steal there. Haven't seen those listed in Krause (probably won't be - LOL).


    3. Mr T

      Mr T

      Haha - and yes I think Krause lists them as a circulation coins but I'm pretty sure the 1994-dated coins are set only.

    New book "The Decimal Penny"

    Nice - not really into decimals myself but always good to see good coin books coming out.
  12. I think I stopped looking after that - the rest of the Cook Islands stuff is keeping me busy though. It was produced by the Royal Australian Mint - I'm sure I could find out how many were produced but I haven't gotten around to it yet. Their record keeping should be pretty good though - just accessing the records is the hard part.
  13. I feel your pain - for a long time I assumed that no 1994-dated Cook Islands coins existed - then one day I saw a set for sale on ebay. Needless to say I didn't hesistate.
